Fashion News Roundup: Louboutin and YSL Still at It, PETA Hates on Kim Kardashian and Janet Jackson, and Kate Moss' Vogue Cover Gets Recycled

The Latest on YSL v. Louboutin: Yes, this is still happening. YSL's lawyers have now filed their appeal against Christian Louboutin's latest appeal, which was due by the end of 2011. Way back in April, Louboutin sued YSL for selling a (red) shoe with a red sole, claiming the famed footwear designer had put a trademark on scarlet soles in 2008 - which the judge then deemed invalid. But clearly, Chris L. wasn't about to give up without a fight. Y'all got drama, the saga continues. {WWD} PETA Names Janet Jackson, Kim Kardashian "Celeb Grinches": Is wearing fur the same as hating Christmas? PETA, who sure has a way with biting commentary, called Miss-Jackson-if-you're-nasty "just plain nasty" for her apparent love of animal pelts and collaboration with Blackglama. Fur-lover Kim K has also been blacklisted, unlike her "sweet sister Khloe" who starred in an anti-fur PETA ad. {Telegraph} Kate Moss Vogue Cover Gets Dupli-Kated: What ever happened to originality (and budgets), people? Australian mag Madison's Jan 2012 cover is a more saturated version of Kate Moss's Vogue Paris cover from June/July 2010. And you may remember that just a few weeks back, Carey Mulligan's American Vogue cover was reincarnated as a French Elle cover. These photos are without a doubt lovely, but isn't the point of a fashion mag to sell clothes? Pretty sure those outfits are out of season... {HuffPo}

UK Soldiers Hate Their New Uniform: Most women go crazy for a man in uniform, but in the UK, it's the uniforms that are driving soldiers crazy. The Ministry of Defense spent £40 million on brand new camo uniforms for the army, which many soldiers have complained are "shabby" and resembling of a toy action figure. "We are not American," scoffed one soldier. Offense taken! {Telegraph}
